My family, especially my daughters Libby and Mandy
My job
being by the sea
walking in the country
dancing in the rain
music
reading
writing (wouldn't be here if I didn't)
being with friends
dark nights by the fire with a good book and wine
long soaks in the bath
the wind through a windchime
the sun on my face
all wildlife

Hates
nothing but a few things irritate not worth mentioning


Has had to re-invent myself following the death of my husband 2 years ago and I've learned that I am a stronger person than I thought and that true friends stand by you when others walk away.

I have had to learn to do things by myself and I've made solo journeys, surprised how happy and content I can be with my own company.

My philosophy - CARPA DEUM (seize the day) - for there may never be a tomorrow

The Seasons they are a'changing


Blog Posted:8/19/2011 3:16:00 PM
The weather has definately changed over here in blighty this week, especially up here in Cumbria.  I have woke this week to chills in the air and morning mists and the nights are beginning to shorten quite quickly now.

Up at the project where I work (based on an old farm site), the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn and here and there you see traces of red and gold.

Luckily for me, I live 30 minutes from some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK - the Lake District - and when Autumn comes, it becomes a living tapestry of colour. My daughter and I are going to take a trip there on sunday to take some pics (my other love is photography). How can you fail to be inspired when you are surrounded by such beauty - it's no wonder Wordsworth was such a wordsmith.



If I could fathom out how to put a pic on my blog You would have seen something beautiful but if you check out my blog photos you will see Ulswater at Autumn - this is where I am going on sunday

    Sorry you can't figure out how to do the pics. I wouldn't know how to do them either. I am glad I don't live that far north. I would hate to see fall coming this early, but it does sound beautiful!
